The Buffalo Field Campaign welcomes the Wiconi Wakan Youth Camp August 14th - August 19th for our Tribal Youth Outreach Program!
Buffalo Field Campaign is honored to host Wiconi Wakan Youth Group from the Oglala Lakota Nation located at Pine Ridge, SD. We continue our tribal outreach efforts by offering inter-disciplinary opportunities that facilitate cultural learning, allows access to the beautiful Yellowstone Ecosystem, and educates them on wild bison ecology.
Visiting tribal groups will experience a robust, impactful environment focused on our National Mammal as a keystone species. The Campaign respects the buffalo lifeways central to tribal culture, and is grateful we can provide a camp welcoming to all tribes and for introductory and advanced learning for all youth. Similarly, we look forward to learning from the Oglala people.
Wiconi Wakan (Life is Sacred) Youth Movement is a grassroots movement established in the #4/Payabya Community on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Their mission is to empower our youth through personal development, creating opportunities and community service.
The youth group is raising $4,532.00 for their travel expenses.
